at Rancho's in Ocean Beach.
Dallas and Mary Clark hosted an afternoon and evening
at the Wild Animal Park on Friday, 8/23.
A large group met Saturday morning at La Jolla Shores beach
for a strenuous hike to the pier and back. That evening
we all met for a final get together in the upstairs dining room
